A new look!

As you can see from the top of the blog, we've now got ourselves a snazzy ole logo. Many, many thanks to our friend Jesse Barnes for his hard work in designing it along with the labels that he designed to go on the beers themselves!! We're lovin' the new look.

Brewing has been going good this year, though of course we're still not brewing as frequently as we would like to. Hopefully we'll be brewing again soon, maybe next weekend, likely brewing our Rainy Day Pale Ale.
We did have a minor SNAFU the last time we brewed the Rainy Day Pale Ale, where 1/2 of it ended up not being good for drinking. The good thing is that instances like that make it good for other things. So, we're trying our hand at making malt vinegar. It's been aging for about a month now and, while it hasn't developed a mother on top, it is smelling nice and vinegar-y. We're going to keep letting it age and see how it goes, but we promise to keep you informed.

Also, Big Brew was May 7th this year and we hope you all celebrated in style. Carrie, of course, took photos of SCBG's Big Brew event. Here is a link to those:
Since she is also now doing more freelance writing she wrote an article about the event as well and it appeared in the local Cave Spring Connection. As soon as that article gets put up online we'll share the link with y'all!!

Love the new logo! I wish I knew someone talented to design one for me.

Patrick Tonkinson's wife Krissy does graphic art!! You should talk to her about it.

Glad to hear you like the logo also. :) That gives us the warm fuzzies.
